Describe the physical magazine. Do not comment on the content. Dimensions, coloring, number of pages, inserts, foldouts – anything that describes the material magazine.
Provide full name. If more than one, list them like:
Provide full name. If more than one, list them with specific titles in parentheses like:
Peter Bowman (Associate Editor)
T.S. Eliot (Contributing Editor)
Libraries with Original Issues:
List all libraries as such: Bodleian Library; British Museum; Cambridge University Library; King’s College London; National Library of Scotland, Edinburgh; Trinity College Library; University of London Library
If there are online PDFS, include that here, with a hyperlink. NEVER paste the hyperlink directly into the text! What is this, middle school? Always highlight the text and add a link that way.
List the same way you would list the libraries above.
For all entries, if you are sure there are no relevant data, put “None.” If you aren’t 100% sure, put “Unknown”
Give an overview of the magazine here. Remember that you are writing a bibliographic entry, not an essay.
- Offer unsubstantiated claims like “One of the most influential magazines ever printed.” Your job is to provide cold, hard facts, not offer some profound observation or personal opinion.
- Write so much about the editors that the Editors section becomes redundant
- Write any “filler” material. Some magazines simply do not have much information that’s been published about them. You won’t be penalized for a shorter entry if it’s good and thorough, so don’t try to make it longer by restating what you’ve said or adding meaningless comments.
- Misspell foreign words. If it’s in French, and you don’t speak French, look up which way that accent goes
- Forget to follow basic stylistics: italicize titles of publications; don’t use comma splices; don’t screw up apostrophes
Copy the manifesto of the publication here. If there is no manifesto, explain that there is no manifesto and copy whatever you can find in the magazine that might be similar. If there simply is no manifesto, just say so and move along.
Stylize the heading as follows:
Peter Bowman (Jan. 31, 1909 – Nov. 18, 1995)
Editor: 1941 – 1995
Provide basic biographical information. This includes place of birth, schooling, notable family members, traumatic or transformative experiences, cities of residence, reasons for publishing a magazine, hobbies and interest, love affairs – basically anything you’d find at the top of a Wikipedia entry (though, of course, you’re not about to copy and paste from Wikipedia)
The vaguest section, Contributors is supposed to provide a snapshot of contributing writers. For some publications, the amount of individual contributors is staggering – by no means do you have to list them all.
Be sure to list notable authors and artists, but do not restrict your entries to canonical figures.
